About this book

This book is an investigation of the manner in which the provision and operation of the housing market in Britain has influenced the spatial evolution of urban areas. In particular, the pattern of residential mobility and intra-urban migration is used to demonstrate the way in which changes in the housing market have produced changes in the social geography of the city. One English city, Leicester, is used as a case-study to show how such processes have operated since the Industrial Revolution.
